Directory

The 1 in 3 Foundation is creating a comprehensive guide to resources available in Smith County for women survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault.  Directories will be distributed at no cost to mental health providers, law enforcement, hospitals, doctors, church and other community support providers to distribute to women survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault seeking help. This directory will be updated once annually and redistributed each year.

This directory will serve as a guide to direct women seeking help towards the various outlets in our community that can provide them with strength and hope to take the steps to receiving professional treatment and care. This directory also includes resources for addiction recovery counseling and 12-Step programs, as addiction is often a response to sexual trauma.

You should know…

If you are a survivor, you are not alone in what you feel.

Child sexual abuse and sexual assault can have a deep and far-reaching impact on the lives of those affected by it. Isolation, shame, guilt, fear, anxiety, low-self esteem, and sexual dysfunction are just a few of the damaging byproducts of this type of trauma.

As victims of the abuse/assault, we many not have shared our story with others or reported the incident(s) because:

  • The victim does not know the sexual abuse isn’t normal
  • The victim doesn’t know that there is help available
  • The victim may fear the consequences of reporting the abuse
  • The victim may believe that no one will believe them if they report the abuse
  • The victim may be afraid of the way other people may react
  • The victim may have been threatened by the abuser

Also

The 1 in 3 Foundation wants to connect survivors with opportunities to share their stories of strength and hope to encourage and build recovery networks within their communities. Sharing experiences with like-minded individuals or those who have a similar story can help the healing process and help the survivor remove the pain of isolation and fear.

The 1 in 3 Foundation will create opportunities to connect survivors through several programs including:

  • Retreats
  • Fellowship Opportunities
  • Monthly/Weekly Survivor Meetings
